Adding AA FF# to BA ticket trick I hope this saves everyone some time ;D

I was trying to add my aa ff# to a BA res using finair (

I have done that many times successfully in the past. This time a no go. I googled around and found that others were having the same issue "generic error" on finnair.

The second suggestion by Dan and others is to add the AA FF# using royal jordanian, this works  - but is a pain because it makes you put in your passport info (even for a domestic flight).

So I started going through the One World partners and I finally found that Qatar's "Manage my booking" works quite well!

Here is the link  -

Re: Moving Violation Tickets
I got another ticket today. This time it was for talking on my phone. Though I wasn't actually talking on my phone when he saw me, I was sending a voice note on whatsapp.

When the officer came over and mentioned that he saw me talking on the phone, I stupidly said "that's correct that I was holding my phone, however I was not talking on it at the time."

So he came back with my ticket and said, "I didn't give you for talking on the phone, instead it's for just holding your phone which is not as many points."

Anyway, the ticket he gave me is VTL 1225-D which according to my research is the same they'll give you for texting while driving. Basically carries 5 points if convicted.

The court for this is City of Newburgh. What am I looking at to plead it down? I'll probably use an attorney to represent me on this one.
Oh gosh, invest in this one...

Paypal Master Thread Any solution to buying with a new paypal account (4 months old)?

People need to really watch out. While I don't condone the crime, he was one of many and just got unlucky. He is basically a Korbon.

I have always thought about the FBI investigating how a large family that sends their kids to private schools can be on welfare.
Um -1

someone who was making 1 million a year and doing this is not a korbon...

My point is not that they are innocent (they're not). My point is that they were picked from a pool of many, many people. They got unlucky.
-1 million

I'm sure most people making 1 million a year aren't claiming section 8, food stamps and Medicaid

Re: Walmart orders getting cancelled
Hey Guys,

Has anyone else here gotten their Walmart orders cancelled and told the reason is because they need to "verify payment"? Was any one given a heads up about this or you only found out after your order didn't come?
Bumping a very old post I see, every order I place from walmart cancels with the following message.

Thanks for your recent order. We're really sorry, but we've canceled the items shown below because we couldn't verify some or all of your payment information. Please sign in to your account and be sure your billing address, phone number and credit card information is correct and current.

If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center. Hope to see you again soon!

Any way to fix this??

Re: Credit score down 55 due to Barclay missed payment!
Was the score drop a FICO score? Does your credit report have the late payment?
Start with Barclays.  See if you can call corporate or write a 'good will letter' asking them to remove the late payment from the credit bureaus.
I'm paying a guy $350 to take care of it, hopefully the Goodwill letter that he sends will work, Barclays are mamzerim

Re: PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others

There does seem to have been an allegation that defendant threatened to (and apparently followed through on) dispute the transactions as a result of some other dispute.

I foresee this being an issue for defendant (fraudulent chargebacks), the gmach (misuse of merchant agreement), and "K" (misuse of CCs). What a mess.
Ouch, though no one seems to know what this other dispute is about, and these charges were clearly authorized...

Re: PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others
Here is a little update. Did alot more digging recently. The whole story about S**** Credit card processor getting frozen is a lie. He just decided that he had enough of the Ponzi scheme and didn't want continue this, and decided to bust out. He's still doing sales and, his processor is doing just fine. Hes sitting on millions of dollars of inventory that he continues to sell on Amazon. his store name on Amazon is Super deal ( wonder if there is a way to alert Amazon about what he did)
And just using whatever money he can get his hands on to retain legal help to cover himself. In addition he used people cards without permission
can't imagine he still has his processor after all those charge backs...

Re: Amex Closed Accounts
I doubt these small charges at Sterling could have triggered it, if this was the reason and they are looking at certain area codes and merchants, then keep trying to find out why, good luck.
Unfortunately it seems that a lot of these shutdowns have been systematic. So, charge amount does not necessarily matter. I know that sounds crazy.

Seems like there is one merchant that is still swiping cards at their grocery store... Perhaps its time for a wiki?

Re: Radar Detector
I have a valentine 1
The unique feature about the valentine is that it tells you in what direction the radar is coming from and how many bands it's picking up, which is useful when there's more than 1 cop on the roads

Its not worth it to get a cheap detector bc if it doesn't work as good as the better ones you'll get caught and waste your money

I've had mine for 2 years and it saved me a few times from a cop
right on the v1,however their patent expired so now others can and have copied them. IMHO there is no point in a radar detector without the arrows. Also a big thing with the v1 is that you can pay $150/$200 every big update (outside and housing stays the same) and essentially get the whole thing upgraded. Other brands you need a new one every 3-5 years.

Re: Dan's Tesla Thread
Thanks! Ya, I was under the impression if one did a test drive they were not eligible, looking around online seems like they changed that a few months ago.

So now he's definitely ordering the model 3 - the big question remains if he should upto the performance or not. @Dan you said you felt that it was not worth 10k, for him though he definitely likes the look of the 20 inch wheels better (though obviously if one is price conscious it will cost more over time). Also those red breaks look real hot:)

One big thing I'm thinking is that I wonder (gonna research this now) if the Non performance long range has more range, I see that they all say 310 miles, but I know that they played with the #s a bit so people wouldn't just not go with the performance.
@Dan used your link:) Ordered the performance lol.

Re: Amex F/R Master Thread
I have a F/R on mine and on my DW account, We filed a joint return, is there any DP if the 4506t could clash? (i.e. the IRS will not release the return twice in the same time period)
I've never seen any DP to indicate that it would be an issue. However to play it safe maybe leave a week in between (within the time limits that amex allows of course)

He is, virtual.

May 10, 2020, 09:27:10 PM
Re: Law School I've been reading a lot on the topic, and have read through most of this thread (quite a lot of info in here).

Basically I never saw myself going back to school, however i'm currently doing IT and don't necessarily love it. Also, as time goes on the bills increase..

With that said I"ve always had the idea in the back of my head about going to law school. Law does interest me (in my spare time I"ll read through random cases, i love looking up cases etc) though I assume most of law is more boring writing:)

I was considering perhaps working for a few months hard & taking Fisch's course, and hopefully getting a good enough LSAT score to get a free ride into a lower tier college. I can't anyhow see myself putting in the hours that I know friends are putting in 80~ a week for big law (aside from the crazy competition to even get in)

However some are telling me that with such low job aspirations I should just skip law altogether.. as if not in big law then there isn't much money anyhow.

If anyone could provide some insight that would be much appreciated.


May 11, 2020, 11:23:55 PM
1. You are only about the 101st person to tell me that. Easier said than done!!!
2. Not according to comments above thread

I know where you are coming from (a good place i'm sure) and I know what you are thinking and where you want to go. I'd rather not air out that much dirty laundry on here, so we can take it to Pm and you can call me if you have any further questions. However I''ll lay out some info here for everyone. I''ll try to keep it pareve, because i'd rather not bash them in public.

Hatzolah in many neighborhoods has become and exclusive club, you can't get in unless you are very connected to someone, or come with a lot of money, or if you are in an area that they are really really struggling.

Also they are mostly run like personal fiefdoms therefore what may seem logical and simple just doesn't happen. For example, I know many medics that are/were current members of various hatzolahs that they refused to let them ride as medics (they had to ride as emt's) simply because that's what the person in charge wanted. Only after much fighting, rabbonim etc did they get bumped up.

With that said - I would not change your life radically (e.g. move neighborhoods/take a paramedic course instead of yeshiva/etc) IN THE HOPES that you one day may be able to join hatzolah, many have gotten burned, and as overall their stance is they simply don't need you etc you most likely will be burned out and frustrated.

Chesed can be done in many other organizations that desperately need your help. I know (been an EMT for a few years now) that rolling to jobs and doing chesed at the same time is super awesome, but don't base your life around an organization that's stance is that they don't need you, and you"ll spend years trying to prove otherwise. 

May 14, 2020, 11:33:30 AM
Well said I must say, but what I don't get, why wouldn't Hatzalah have as many members or at least a bit more than 250 throughout Flatbush for example?
  Take Israel for example they have over 6k members on ichud Hatzalah.

    What's the problem with having an overflow of members and put less stress on other members by them knowing there's only 3 members in this neighborhood, now they can have 6 or whatever?

 As well, I thought they started to charge insurance for calls ? Or was that only if you had insurance?
Members (as in the total amount of them) doesn't mean much, it's active members that count (flatbush especially)

Too many members -  I'm with you. Though of course that doesn't literally mean that everyone single EMT should have a radio, it definitely IMO should be tilted that way more than the current exclusivity. Would also help shoulder the burden off the very active members & nights and shabbos.

Insurance - Most neighborhoods softbill now I belive, as they should. No use in throwing away free money. I laughed when one coordinator went to the news and publicly resigned because he said if they start billing then it"ll corrupt hatzolah. As if lol.
